The Waterloo Metro Quarter Over Station Development is identified as State Significant Development (SSD).


State Significant Development assessment process:

  • The applicant, Sydney Metro, lodges an application and supporting documentation to the Department of Planning and Environment.
  • The Department prepares the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs), which outlines issues the applicant needs to address.
  • The applicant prepares and lodges an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to address the SEARs.
  • The Department publicly exhibits the EIS and consults with the community, local councils, government agencies and other key stakeholders.
  • The Department publishes submissions and asks the applicant to address any concerns or issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.
  • The applicant prepares a formal Response to Submissions (RtS) report, which the Department makes publicly available.
  • The Department assesses the proposal, including consideration of the EIS, all submissions and community feedback, and the RtS, and makes a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for determination.
  • The Department then notifies the applicant, relevant government agencies and councils on the outcome.
